Yes, a few more cards this month–all girls–a new grandbabe, our daughter, and my dad’s wife.
These cards gave me a chance to use my new Copic markers (that I said I would never get) that I got at an insanely cheap price, so did.
I love this old buggy stamp (TPC Here Comes Baby set) that I used for our new grandgirl’s card. I cut the frame with my large floral oval die in my Cuttlebug, then stamped the buggy and colored it with my Copics. Inside I used the dress, shoes, bow and “Bundle of Joy” stamps from the same set, coloring the dress, bow and shoes. I printed the Welcome on another small floral oval die cut, and popped it up with a foam square. The rattle on the envelope is from the same stamp set and colored. I LOVE this card and how it turned out, and was OK with my first attempt at using the Copics.
Grandma’s card was stamped with a large rose background stamp (InkadinkaClings Vintage Flora) and floral frame with sentiment (Inkadinkadoo Birthday Wishes). The corners were cut with a Fiskars fancy corner cutter (3 in 1 Corner Punch – Lace), and the popped up flower is a K & Company (Susan Winget Floral Layered Accents) die cut. I finished the outside with pink ribbon tied around the card, and flat back pearls. Inside the card I stamped another sentiment, and a smaller rose that I colored with my Copics.
The back of each card received the Handmade with Love stamp. 🙂
Check back tomorrow for our daughter’s Victorian card.
